My dh and I both signed up for The Biggest Loser at work. We are on separate teams which isn't good cause he is doing pretty darn well!! (I could so use him on my team)lol . There are four people on each team. This will be starting the third week and I have lost 8 1/2 pounds so far. I have to be realistic, I like food and I love eating. So I know that I can't diet, cause then I will gain it all back eventually. So I have to make a lifestyle change. I eat out ALOT, everyday, several times a day. We live in a very small place that has only two bedrooms and no stove, I do have a toaster oven and a microwave. We live in the basement of a home, my individuals I take care of live above us. But because of our small home, I don't like to cook because I make huge messes and like to have alot of room to cook. Anywho, I decided that I would start just eating out mainly at Subway everyday, I'm doing the modified Jarad thing, lol. So that is how I am starting to lose weight, plus we joined a recreation place that has a track, gym, basketball court and a nice swimming area. Oh and the best is that is has childcare for Aysha. So today after Church we head to Subway. We go in and it is a HUGE line going all the way to the door. Subs are 5 dollars for a footlong, that is why. I'm in line and I send Mercede to get her drink out of the cooler they have there. But then Aysha joins her and they are fighting. Mercede has three drinks for each one of the girls and Aysha is also getting drinks. The cooler is at the front of the store and I don't want to lose my place. I'm trying to solve the problem but talking loudly to the girls, but at this time Aysha is banging the cooler door against Mercede and Mercede is getting very angry so I know I have to get to them. I told Cheyenne to come over and stand in line for me and to stay in line! I go over to the cooler where I battled with the girls to put some stuff down and then I turn around and there is Cheyenne standing behind me! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! And 6 more people have walked in and got into line where we should be. So I put everything back and we walked out. I told the girls they had to listen and now we had to leave cause they didn't. BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT, I really wanted my sub. I get alot of veggies that way!! lol Mercede is being hateful in the car, she said the "S" word and then got an ear ful from me. But I really want my sub so I drove to another Subway!! lol And we had along talk about how they have to listen and behave or none! Mercede had alot of attitude still, but I could see her allergies were bothering her. But I got my Sub, ummmmmmmmmmmmmm, nope, that isn't bacon on it, I swear, it is a rotten pepper, yeah, that is it! (okay, I will cut the bacon out of my subs later, lol). Then we came home and walked for a mile. Mercede usually gets tired and complains but she did really well! A word of advice, don't buy the bottled water at Subway, it is like 1.79 for a bottle. I had no idea and got us four bottles yesterday.
I'm a mother to four children it was five but Child Husband and I have divorced (weird not having someone on my sofa 24/7). I have only 45 chromosomes, cause I am really special! My youngest only has 45 too. Confused? Look up Robertsonian Translocation Trisomy 21. I have two adult daughters with Down Syndrome. One is a flirt and the other is a tornado. Since my first daughter with Down syndrome was born, I have heard that kids with down syndrome are ANGELS! Well, I want to know Where My Angels are? Cause I sure haven't gotten any!!
